The Fox 9 News team made a bit of news of its own when it got fined $4,000 Thursday by the Federal Communications Commission for using video without identifying where it came from.
The 2006 complaint from the Free Press and the Center for Media and Democracy centers on a 2006 piece about how popular convertibles have become and showed off only cars made by General Motors. Problem: Video was produced and provided by General Motors without telling viewers. The FCC says that was a no no.
When asked for a response, a Fox spokesperson said: “We are currently reviewing the matter and will respond at the appropriate time to the FCC.”
